Happy Friday! We are planning and packing this weekend for 5 days at one of our favorite music festivals! We look forward to this one all year, and I am so glad that the time has come!
This will be a “rough” camping trip, tenting with 4,000 friends on a farm in upstate New York. Our list of things to bring for this one is long, as we need to provide for most of our needs while literally “in the field” haha! We’ve got our camping setup pretty well figured out (we’ve been at this crazy lifestyle for 7 years now), but this year will bring some new challenges in the area of feeding ourselves.
While I have gone to the festival website and researched who the food vendors will be, I do not have specifics as to what exactly they will be serving. I see a couple of possible options for us, which is good. Once we are on-site, we don’t really like to leave the fest since it means we will likely miss something we wanted to do/see.
So, we have decided to be optimistic and plan to purchase dinner each night from one of the vendors. Fingers crossed that it works out OK.
We’re also trying something new and bringing a couple of bottles of Trader Joe’s cold brewed coffee concentrate for instant iced coffees with heavy cream. I will let you know how that works out…
Breakfasts will (of course) be our traveling egg wrap sandwich. Camp cooking is done with a single burner coleman stove that runs on white gas. It works great for frying up the eggs and bacon.
If we feel the need for lunch, that will be made up of cheese and available low carb veggies and dip (there will be an organic produce vendor on site!). Ham and cheese for quick roll ups. Peanut butter spoon “fat bombs” if all else fails. Generally we sleep fairly late at this fest, so breakfast may actually be lunch!
I am also throwing a couple of kielbasas into our cooler for some late night/wee hours pan-fried goodness to share!
I am hoping that my planning and packing good food options will keep us on track this next week. We bought a new heavy duty cooler to ensure that the food stays fresh, and I am freezing two gallon jugs filled with water to go on either side of it in addition to the bags of ice we will add on top. Beverages have their own separate cooler, ensuring that we open this one only at mealtimes.
Just a few more days until we can head out. Can’t wait!
